International Students

At The College of Idaho, you’ll find a campus that reflects the world and welcomes you. International students make up approximately 8 percent of The College of Idaho’s student body (nearly 100 students) and represent more than 40 countries along with a diverse range of religions, languages and ethnicities.

International students bring an important worldview to our campus and become some of our best student leaders. The College provides a variety of support services to international students, including merit scholarships, so you can make the most of your experience here. Members of the International Student Organization host events to share diverse cultural traditions with the entire campus.  In fact, International Week and the International Food Fair are two of the most popular annual events at The College of Idaho.

To be considered for admission to the College, international applicants must submit the following:

  • The Common Application
  • Letter of Recommendation
  • Official High School Transcripts
  • Official ACT and/or SAT scores or test optional essay responses
  • Certification of Finances (see document at the bottom of this page) 

The College offers endeavors to take a holistic approach to the admission process.  Please contact the Office of Admission ([email protected]) if you have questions or concerns.

The College offers merit scholarships to international students to defer some of the expense of attending college in the United States.
